Ask a stupid question I guess, but why don’t they put shelters in these schools?

God help the families.

Two schools were hit and destroyed, in one no one died, in the second they are no longer doing rescue, they are doing search and recovery for the 24 children.

They do have shelters in some schools, but they only had less then a 15 minute warning.

Witness the results of the "lockdown" herd mentality.

What a horrible story. I wager that the outcome would have been different had we been teaching kids to run like hell rather than shelter in place.

F5s aren’t hurricanes. You need bomb shelters to survive. They may have been in a basement. God help these people.

All they usually do is have the kids sit in hallways with their heads between their knees, at least that’s what we did as kids in Michigan.

This tornado was so bad, though, that the school probably just exploded, would not have mattered where anyone was. Happened to Lake School District in Ohio a few years ago—obliterated. Fortunately there was no school that day.

A tragedy that will be perverted by the press with a Sandy Hook comparison.

Heard a report earlier that addressed the ground there. Evidently there is a layer of top soil, and then there’s an almost impenetrable layer under that. Evidently very few homes have the traditional storm shelters in Oklahoma. (basement involved)

I’m not saying it’s true, but that was a comment made on one of the afternoon talk shows in Los Angeles (KFI).

I know this is no time for politics, but after this week I have to wonder if the Feds are going to factor in past activities when they decide who gets what disaster relief.

Pray for the victims and our country.

You don’t run from an F5 on foot. You go to ground and pray. Everything in the open is shredded.

How soon before these deaths will be blamed on the Republican’s sequester cutting “vital” funds from weather warnings systems? I am certain Obama is preparing for a trip to Oklahoma for a photo op and will like in the wake of hurricane Sandy promise all kinds of federal aid which will never arrive.

As most have mentioned, the large numbers generally require evacuation to the structure interior, unless they have some substantial underground facility, such as a lunchroom, as my school did.

In this case, the direct hit, combined with the power of the event likely made a lot this irrelevant.

Yes, from the reports I saw, 75 students and faculty were in a hallway. The hallway no longer exists. I hope I’m wrong but I predict the death toll to continue to rise.

Prayers for those poor families.

Smith on Fox just said that they have recovered six or seven little ones already and that they had drowned...Dear Lord!
